Before trying the FRS products, I was reminded that the products should be tried over a period time. Their products do offer some pick-me-up after the first serving. But, I was told that many of the benefits and increase in energy happen as you consume it daily over time. FRS is also a great alternative to caffeine ... which I could certainly use with my coffee and Diet Mountain Dew addition.

I LOVED the low-cal tropical flavor, but didnt' really enjoy the strawberry melon flavor. I enjoyed the tropical flavor on the tennis court ona very hot day and it was refreshing (when served cold). Had a great consistency, with no nasty after taste. The flavors weren't strong, but were just sweet enough. Yum, yum, yum! I can't say that I experienced any increase in energy when trying these. I also like that they were only 20 calories.
FRS Healthy Energy
FRS® Healthy Energy® - powered by a patented formula containing Quercetin, green tea, catechins, and essential vitamins. It is perfect for the active, on-the-go person to get sustained energy and to help maximize performance. It comes in 12oz bottle with 90cal and a low 20cal with no artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors.
I have trouble consuming that many calories in a drink. I didn't like the berry flavor at all and it had an awful after taste. I also tried the blackberry acai and orange cream flavors which were much more tolerable. But I didn't like the after taste. They tasted very think and like they were packed with "vitamins".
FRS powdered drink mix comes in a box of single-serve stick packs. It’s the perfect beverage solution if you’re hitting the road for a run, ride or a business trip. The packs are small, lightweight and easy to add to your water bottle. With just 10 calories each they’re also the lowest calorie way to get your FRS sustained energy if you’re watching your waistline. wild berry, orange, lemon lime
The cost of $20 for pack of 14 powders is extremely high in my book. I'm a big fan of Crystal Light (I know, a different kind of product), but was interested in trying these. I hate lemon-lime, so was excited to try wild berry. It didnt' mix up well in my cup or in my bottle. It was very thick and chunky and tasted very full of "vitamins" (again). At only 5-10 calories a packet, I think it's a great alternative to soda and would be a great way to get in your water for the day. But, i just couldnt' stomach it. I didn't try this enough to experience any change in energy.
FRS Hard-Shell Chews
FRS® Healthy Energy® Hard Shell Chews are an easy, convenient way to have on-the-go natural energy throughout the day. FRS® Healthy Energy® Hard Shell Chews are an amazingly delicious product fueled by a patented formula containing Quercetin. Three delicious flavors: Pomegranate Blueberry, Pineapple Mango and Orange.
These reminded me of the "chiclets" gums that we ate back in the day. The pomegranate blueberry flavorite was not a favorite of mind. I would have preferred orange, I think. But the consistency and taste wasn't bad. It was easer to chew and down before a run or during short breaks. I found it hard to chew while I was on the run. I experienced a slight increase in energy the two times I tried these on shorter runs. They were easy to store in the container in my gym bag. But, difficult to transport the indivdiual chews when on the run.
FRS Soft Chews
FRS soft chews are individually wrapped and ideal for travel. Simply unwrap two chews and eat, no water required. You can keep them in your gym bag or purse so they are there wherever you need a boost. Each 30 count bag provides 15 servings.
I liked the soft chews much better than the hard-shell chews. The pineapple mango flavor was awesome and the consistency was easier to handle when on the run. I found an increase in energy when using these during training runs. They were easy to store in the container in my gym bag. But, difficult to transport the indivdiual chews when on the run.
The only shot that offers consumers two convenient ways to refuel: 2 ounce shot for instant energy on the go; Mix with water for a delicious FRS Healthy Energy drink. Healthy alternative to energy shots and drinks that rely on sugar or caffeine. Each shot provides 1 serving. Sold in packages of 6, 12 and 24.
I had to down the orange flavor in one gulp, otherwise I couldn't stomach it. But, the benefits were gerat. It gave me a boost when I was in a slump and needed to get some things done around the house. I plan to try the other one while out on a long training run. 20 calories for low-cal / 120 calories for regular. Not too shabby for a quick pick-me-up.
